Asphalt is a composite material commonly used for construction of pavement, highways and parking lots. It consists of asphalt binder and mineral aggregate mixed together then laid down in layers and compacted. Asphalt can be applied quickly on a prepared surface, which means a parking lot can be graded, poured and painted with little delay. Patching asphalt is usually a matter of bringing new material to the affected area and pressing it into the cracks or potholes.
Extend the life span of your asphalt, whether newly installed or already existing, through routine maintenance and seal coating. Asphalt should be sealed soon after it is installed to keep the oils in and other destructive elements out. If sealed correctly, an already existing asphalt surface can be restored to a rich, new appearance.
